Your Administration Has Brought Woes To Rivers People, APC Tells Wike
The Rivers State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has said the state presently stands out as the worst in areas of unemployment with highest unemployment rate of 41.82 per cent in the country in the third quarter of 2017 according to the latest data released by the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS).
The party stated this in a statement signed by Chief Eze Chukwuemeka Eze, Media Consultant to Dr Davies Ibiamu Ikanya the State Chairman of Rivers APC.
According to him, of every 10 persons in Rivers State, 4 are without jpbs. Affirming the position of the National Bureau of Statistics, the party noted that under Wike’s administration, no Rivers State Indigene have been employed into the Civil Service instead those employed like the 13,200 Teachers employed by Amaechi were sacked.
“Any right thinking Rivers State is concerned Wike is a disaster as exemplified by many of his misguided steps that he took to decimate most of the feats of Amaechi which if he has assisted to build upon would have turned the fortunes of the State around.
“The party notes with sadness how Wike programmed and supervised the decimation of every agency in Rivers State. Today, both the Due Process Unit, the unit responsible for ensuring transparency in Public Procurement; the Rivers State Sustainable Development Agency (RSSDA), the agency responsible for the training of present and future manpower needs of the State and the Rivers State Scholarship Board another important agency all have completely failed since Wike’s assumption of office.
“The party lamented that today our educational system under the watch of Governor Nyesom Wike is nothing to write home about as most of our students now study under deplorable situation while locking model schools constructed by Amaechi’s administration.
“Wike’s administration stands out as the only administration since the creation of the State in 1967 that has refused to provide Scholarships for Rivers youths despite receiving billions of naira exposing his hatred for the future of our youths,” the statement partly read.
